Spring Term - January
Happy new year from everyone here at East Worlington preschool.
After a lovely Christmas break the children at East Worlington preschool have come back to a new topic to explore gardening and plants.
We have transformed the roleplay shed into a gardening centre, lots of seeds compost and plant pots to fill.
We will also be creating our own little veggie garden where we're hoping to grow our own food for the snails.
We will be looking at the seasons and the changes they bring this term.
Autumn Term - December 2018
This half term we started off with talking about autumn and autumn colours, we created our own autumn collages and pictures using fallen leaves, conkers and sticks and enjoying lots of lovely autumn walks. The children also helped make pumpkins fizz and made our own potions using pumpkin seeds, glitter and water.
We joined the school to visit the war memorial laying down our wreath where we also took part in 2 minutes silence.
We are now enjoying lots of Christmas activities, making our own reindeer food, getting ready for our Christmas nativity and carol service and we have our very own Santa’s workshop where the children can help to wrap presents and build their own toys.
We have been joined by a cheeky Elf until Christmas who is causing mischief in the school!
Some of our children will also be joining the school for the panto- peter pan this year so we have been reading the story and creating our own Neverland!
Preschool also took part in the school’s nativity play where they sang ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ so beautifully.

We were very excited to welcome back the preschool children this September with a freshly painted book corner and some classroom pets- African land snails.
We have been learning all about what they like to eat and preparing their fresh food every day.
This half term we have transformed the role play into goldilocks and the three bears where the children can make porridge and go on many bear hunts in the garden.
Last half term preschool had great fun reading the different versions of Goldilocks and the three bears, our roleplay was the bear’s cottage where lots of porridge was made! We also went on a teddy bears picnic to East Worlington’s house where the children took their favourite teddy with them.

The first half term we read ‘The lighthouse keeper’ series. The children have been busy cooking up lunches in Mrs Grinling’s kitchen and building their own lighthouses.
We have also had an ice cream playdough roleplay where the children explored many smells and colours, mint, vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and lemon flavours!
After half term we will be exploring sea creatures and reading ‘Commotion in the ocean’. The children will be able to serve food from the seaside café and build lots of sandcastles!
This topic has enabled the children to explore lots of messy play which they have thoroughly enjoyed.
Our seaside topic came to an end at half term, the children enjoyed making plenty of playdough ice cream’s at the ice cream parlour and exploring the many different underwater creatures.
This half term we are very excited to be exploring mini beasts starting off with ‘The hungry caterpillar’. We have our very own butterfly garden which allows the children to watch the tiny little caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies, then we will set them free in the our garden.
We have also planted some sunflowers where the children are measuring them to see how tall they are.
We have also been so lucky to enjoy the beautiful weather and exploring the garden doing many different games with the parachutes.
